Shows such as EastEnders and Coronation Street are to be monitored for diversity following the launch of a new system that measures the ethnic, gender and sexual orientation makeup of British television.
The BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky are taking part in Project Diamond, which will gather data about the background of those working on all UK programmes.
All key staff, from actors to sound technicians, will be asked about their gender, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation and gender identity via a confidential, encrypted computer system.

LAGRANGE, Ga. -- When school is out for the summer months, it’s easy to understand how kids can get bored and look for things to keep them occupied. But for one local official, the reason behind a group of teens seeking out a way to stay busy made a big impact.
On July 27, head of the LaGrange Housing Authority Zsa Zsa Heard was working in her office, as she has for the last two years, when she was approached by four young teens asking for jobs.

A notorious hate preacher who led a flag-burning demonstration outside the US embassy on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and voiced support for jihad has been convicted of inviting support for ISIS.
Anjem Choudary, 49, has courted controversy over two decades, skirting the edges of the law, backing extremism but with no proof of actually inciting violence. He earned the wrath of Britain's tabloid newspapers, making him - by his own admission -- the country's "most hated man."
Temporary tattoos can let you control gadgets: Gold leaf transfers could be used as trackpads, to transmit data or even sense changes in mood
There is always lots of speculation as to what the "Mark" of the beast will be. It has been stated that everything from the barcode to rfid was the mark. The truth is, we will not know what it is until it actually happens. Chances are it is something supernatural rather than mechanical or technological. But it is more than likely not anything we have currently seen. That being said, this is something that could very well be a forerunner to what the mark could be.

DURHAM (WTVD) --
Coming up from the water in his red Durham County Detention jumpsuit, a smile fell across the face of an inmate just baptized. Shouts of praise by a group of chaplains and applause from nearby detention staff briefly drowned out the sound of worship music playing through a speaker.
As the inmate wiped water from his head and climbs out of the above ground swimming pool brought in just for this moment, Sheriff Mike Andrews was there to greet him with a handshake and a small Bible.
It's a scene never played out before at the Durham County jail, but on Sunday, Andrews arranged for 39 inmates, who asked to be baptized by immersion, to do so.

According to a report recently made public, early this year, ISIS specifically identified 15,000 Christian Americans for death and instructed jihadists already in America to begin widespread murder.
The Kill List report comes in the wake of ISIS already publicly warning American and British Christians that "they were next." British police last week publicly warned its 5.4 million Christians to be on alert and in some areas increased security.
